The sixth episode has been foretold by ancient mystics, and now it is questing into your earbits.

The gang waxes melodic about finding a functional cheeseburger backpack, and some really goddamn weird metal acts like Flanders themed Okilly Dokilly.  Matt explains why he always brings cookies to the Calgary and associated Expos media goons.

Then later, Christa brings up how wrestling legend Lita inspired Matt to write a smutty sci-fi e-book.  Updates on Amy's plot to found a Commander Shepard themed riot grrl band and more.

Have you ever heard Gary Busey tell two terrified teens to insert chicken bits into their persons?  Well, you're going to.  Blame Mike.  If it takes the edge off, he brings some rad horror movie news.

The Cabaret returns with it's second episode, confirming we're not some flash in the pan yokels from Saskatchistan.  This week Matt, Amy, Link, Christa and Mike gab about the recently wrapped up Season 5 of Game of Thrones.  The season of wacky schemes and flammable children.

Plus, E3 developments and Matt fangasming over Fallout 4.  And, the gang spends an uncomfortably long amount of time on Christa's discovery of a Pokémon parody that wil make some Nerd Herders tight in the pants.  In exciting Nerdcore Cabaret news, you can actually hear Amy in this episode.

As always, Oreo and Zonya the War Cat fuck around in the background, like cats are wont to do.

The night is long and full of sexy Pikachus.

 

EPISODE CLARIFICATIONS: Matt mentions a joint called Lee's, it's a funerary type place in the City that Rhymes with Fun.  MailChimp has yet to send us Magic Intenet Money....

That's right, Nerd Herd.  The undergound community radio sensation, The Nerdcore Cabaret is coming to your internets in the form of a biweekly audio podgram.

Semi-functional recovering manchild Matty V, and his panel of nerds including film nerd Mike Still, gonzo cosplayer Amy C., and beleagured IT man Link gab and yik yak about games, flicks, tunes, and all the jazz that makes being a nerd a rich and rewarding lifestyle option.

In our debut episode, the gang slowly bashes the concept together.  Then we pine aloud for more goddamn Black Widow merch, live-react to the Supergirl TV trailer, and get lost on ever increasing tangents while our lack of show prep becomes more than evident.

The podcast's just like being an awkward nerdling in high school, it sucks now but eventually it'll get better.  Or it'll withdraw from the world and spend a shitload of money on love pillows.  One of those things.
